Dream House

  • 5 of 5

15 of us from our golf club stayed here and we had a blast. Pat was extremely easy to work with and made sure we were set with directions and arrival instructions. Upon arrival we were all taken aback by the beautiful property, with the koi pond in the middle of the house and the pool and tennis/basketball court. Waiting for us was a welcome basket with snacks and some souvenirs, and in the fridge were some cold beers. Every night Pat put out another basket of goodies for us, what a great host! This was the perfect place for 15 guys to hang out and kick back after a day of golf. With two bbq areas and the pool and court we were all entertained. The house was definitely a highlight of the trip and all of us had a blast. Many already are planning to return with our families and friends and the golf club all agree will be back again next year. Thanks for an unforgettable experience Pat!

Better than we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for one week October 2014, for the Hawaii ironman, in which our son was competing. The bedrooms, the spaces for gathering to meet and talk, the dining facilities, the spectacular gardens were all better than any of us expected. Pat, the owner, was fabulous in the way he did everything he could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We couldn't speak too highly of this home and how we were treated. We are all hoping our son wants to do this ironman again next year. If he does, there is no question about where we will want to stay.

We'll be back!

The photos herein do not do this estate justice. We tried snapping pics of our own to share with Pat and Matt at a later date, but the unique layout and enormity of the property just didn’t allow for the panoramic view we hoped to share. It was magnificent, and our entire group was thoroughly impressed (I got praise all week long for finding it). We were a large group, consisting of both friends and family, and the layout was perfect for us. Although we were all adults, kids too would fall in love with this place (the lofts especially). Pat and Matt were the best, always going above and beyond what any of us expected. They not only provided drinks and snacks upon our arrival, but we also received surprises (big and small) throughout our stay. Plus, their knowledge of the local area was invaluable. The house was secluded enough that we got as much privacy as we wanted but not so secluded that a trip to the grocery store or beaches was a trek. Pat directed us to one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve ever seen (and along the way to it, we were able to stop at a lava tube/cave and take pics). The estate was also very close to the airport, as well as to a really great snorkeling site (turtles!!). The Big Island would have been an amazing place to visit regardless of where we stayed, but we truly can’t imagine a better place to call home after our day-long excursions. Pat and Matt, MAHALO!! And as mentioned above, we’ll be back.

A Unique Hawaiian Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, two of our daughters and their husbands, two teenager grandchildren, and a three-year-old granddaughter spent a week at this tropical estate near Kona on the Big Island. From my first inquiry expressing interest in renting the property to our last day of the actual vacation, Pat was extremely helpful and considerate. He went out of his way to make sure that our whole family enjoyed our week---meeting us at the airport, surprising us with an overflowing welcome basket of goodies, providing tennis rackets and balls, basketballs, snorkeling equipment, and even a deluxe assortment of sand toys for our three-year-old. The property itself is unlike any other place we have stayed on a vacation. There were plenty of bedrooms for all of us to stay together in the main house. (We did not even have to use the two extra bedrooms that are in the guest house by the swimming pool.) The main house features an open-air design, with the dining area actually outside by the beautiful tropical landscaping and koi ponds. We were provided with bags of fish food to feed the koi twice a day, and that became a favorite activity as the week went by. A path leads down from the main house to the private swimming pool, guest house, tennis and basketball courts. One evening we made use of the guest house kitchen and the barbeque grill for a cookout, which we enjoyed at the outdoor tables by the pool. The estate is conveniently located a short drive from the airport, Costco, and downtown Kona. If you are looking for something different from the run-of-the-mill vacation condo, this place is for you! Everything that you need for an memorable vacation is on site, and, if it isn't, Pat will get it for you!

Owner's Response: Aloha to All !! With out exception, All of our past guests at "The Paniolo Country Tropical Gardens and Koi Farms Estate Property", have all been kind, respectful, quality travelers. I remember every single one of the amazing travelers that I have had the pleasure to meet. To all of you, I say, that behalf of my entire family, We feel incredibly blessed and grateful that you made the decision to pass through our lives, To all of you , we miss you, we hope to see you again soon, but most importantly we send our warm ALOHA, We try very hard to never interject ourselves into the guests travel experience, on a complex, large property like "The Estate", A tour upon arrival is necessary, just to inform the new guest of the location of tennis court light switches and things of that nature. We have caretakers that assist with the grounds and botanical gardens and they are "on call" if a guest needs assistance or has a question, I give the arrival tour personally. It is often the only time I meet our traveling guest. Arrival dates are very important to me. Prior to a guests arrival, they have already put trust in me, they have believed the words that I have written in our correspondence and the things that I have said. Incredibly, they have also "paid in full". Up until this point, I have done virtually nothing. These facts do not escape us. When a guest arrives here in paradise, In my mind, I feel very indebted to the guest that we are about to meet. We take the responsibility of providing the "ALOHA" that we promised very seriously, We think, that we teach aloha. Our saying at the estate is "We are spreading ALOHA across the world, one family at a time !! Every once in a while we have a family, that not only teaches us, they inspire us, they make us feel good about our selves. The family that sent in this review was one of those very special families. They inspired us, and showed us true aloha. In our years of being hosts, to hundreds of guests, to our knowledge not a single guest had a bad trip to Hawaii. A bad day in Hawaii, is "It rained between the 10th and 16th hole while I was golfing" or " I only saw a thousand fish today when I was snorkeling, Yesterday I saw 5,000". This family, endured a 2 AM equipment failure, repaired in an hour,but The humor, style and grace in which they handled the mishap makes me smile.I witnessed this family show respect, compassion and love to each other and to myself and to my staff,bless you aloha and mahalo, Pat

Best weekend ever!

We have been coming over to Kona every Memorial Day for the Pony Baseball Tournament and usually stay at Condos. This was by far the best experience ever! The house was amazing, it had everything we could ask for and we all agreed that we want to make this an annual vacation rental!

Let me start with we were scheduled to stay 16 nights and it turned into 20!!!

The Estate is an awesome place for 2 families with kids ranging from 7 to 16 to 24.

The tropical garden and Koi pond make for an awesome place for yoga and meditation.

The ameneties are plentiful and there is no shortage of everybody being able to do something different all at the same time. We had fresh bananas, papaya, and lemons all picked from the trees on the property. My wife has a Gluten Allergy and Ron was able to find a bunch of gluten free products for our arrival. We had a late arrival and asked if it would be possible to get some essentialls for breakfast the next morning. Unfortunately we didn't get the bare essentials, we got a feast...we had pancakes regular and gluten free, eggs, bacon, sausage, juice and iced tea not to mention chocolates and snacks. This was above and beyond, oh and the cold Beer was pretty good too after an extremely long day. Mahalo Pat, Matt, and Ron.
